Yay! Celebrity Deathmatch Set for Reboot

As one of the most enjoyable TV shows of the MTV era, Celebrity Deathmatch got viewers from all around the world. It was wild, completely out of the loop with normal TV and, most importantly, was pretty damn funny. However, for anyone who has taken part in watching this famous show from the noughties, you’ll be happy to know it’s getting a full reboot.

According to Ice Cube, the show will be coming back in the near future. MTV Studios will be working with Ice Cube and Jeff Kawtinetz to help make this even better than the original. MTV has enjoyed a lot of success from jumping into some of their more old-school and most celebrated projects once again. now, we can expect to see Celebrity Deathmatch returning in all of its shocking and chaotic style.

From 1998 until 2002, the original series was one of the major MTV hits of the era. Eric Fogel, the previous creator of the original series, will take an executive production role for this. With comical visual style and outrageous scenes of hilarious violence, we can expect that this latest move will help to bring viewers back to MTV.

The Classics Are The Best

Ice Cube noted his happiness to be involved with the project, saying: “Happy to once again be working with Viacom and MTV on a fan favorite like Celebrity Deathmatch and to continue our success together,”

While it might be slightly out of scope with what people do and watch today, it is safe to say that for many people Celebrity Deathmatch was one of the most enjoyed cult hit shows of its era. While some might find it all a little odd today, it will be funny to see how tech and narrative advancements make this even more enjoyable.

Add in the fact that the celebrity list is bigger today than ever before, and it should be easy to imagine some truly hilarious match-ups taking place. Whatever happens with this latest reboot, it’s nice to see that some classic ideas still hold some kind of artistic merit with production firms.

It might not be to the taste of everyone, but the previous boot of the show was hugely enjoyed at the time. Alongside TV shows like Bo Selecta, it played a key role in opening up a whole new kind of satire on the TV, and was quite the trailblazer.

For those who want to rekindle their love of clay celebrities engaging in brutal battles, then, be sure to keep an eye out for more information about the reboot!

Another ‘War of the Worlds’ Remake?!

As the world seems to have run out of ideas in entertainment, politics, and economics, are you really surprised?

That’s right: War of the Worlds is getting another remake. The old-school classic is about to get a new generation facelift to try and capture another generation entirely. However, it would appear that what was once just a quiet rumor appears to be picking up the pace – and big names along the way. Indeed, it would appear that Greg Kinnear is going to take part in the new remake.

Developed by Canal Plus and by Fox, too, this sounds like it might actually be decent. The actor will be getting brought in after some impressive roles in the likes of House of Cards and Little Miss Sunshine, but probably mostly based on the strength of his Oscar-nominated role in As Good as it Gets. He’s a very impressive actor, and it sounds like his wonderful resume might just land him a major role in a massive reboot that’s sure to rake in the monies.

Interestingly, it sounds like the remake is going to be told across an eight-part series instead of a conventional movie remake. This obviously has people quite interested, especially as it’s got a successful name in Merlin creator Howard Overman involved. It’s going to take place in a modernized America, so we can expect some subtle yet significant changes.

Overman, though, appears determined to impress both new fans as well as any lovers of the old classic. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, he stated: “I look forward to bringing our bold, fresh and relatable version, inspired by this much-loved story to a new audience,”

More of the same?

Interestingly, the BBC also have a three-part remake of the old-school H.G. Wells novel coming out, too. This is going to involve a few notable names, namely Robert Carlyle. As impressive an actor as Scotland has produced, he would make an excellent addition to any remake of this classic tale. Fans, though, might be a touch worried that this excellent book is going to get a touch overly saturated.

Indeed, in 2005 alone we saw three versions of this appear in media format. 2012 seen a sequel and a loose adaption. For the first time in six years, though, we’re going to get what feels like a generation mass-repeat of a wonderful book.

It might all be a bit much, but with each version having its own star actors involved, we might just get the best versions yet.

Netflix Announce ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ Live-Action Series

A live-action series based on Nickelodeon’s beloved cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender is in development at Netflix, the streaming service announced.

After the favorite anime-inspired series hit theaters in a live-action flop, it seems Netflix will try to work its magic on the epic series. According to the company’s See What’s Next account on Twitter, the streaming service is working on a “reimagined” take on Aang’s story.

Co-creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko will return to oversee the live-action series. The pair said in a statement:

“We’re thrilled for the opportunity to helm this live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender,” the pair said in a press release. “We can’t wait to realize Aang’s world as cinematically as we always imagined it to be, and with a culturally appropriate, non-whitewashed cast. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to build upon everyone’s great work on the original animated series and go even deeper into the characters, story, action, and world-building.”

While production won’t begin until 2019, for now, we’ve got some concept art that depicts the protagonist with Appa, the six-legged flying bison who Aang and his friends ride as they travel around the world on their quest.

Will POTUS Trump Lose His Hollywood Star?

For a celebrity, few things can be more damning to be told: losing your Hollywood Star. Easily one of the most important accolades that a celebrity can get, the fact that you can actually lose your star is a major kick in the teeth. Well, it looks like one person might be finally about to stand up to the President of the United States, Donald Trump, in the most innocuous way: removing his Hollywood star.

While we suspect that the Teflon-infused POTUS will just laugh it all off and make some wild comments about it on Twitter, it’s nice to see the celebrity world take a bit of a stand for once. The celebrity world is loaded with a lack of fire when it comes to making a political message stand out, and it’s nice to see self-preservation take a back seat for a change.

The five-member West Hollywood City Council has apparently voted unanimously to have the star removed from the ground. While the council lacks the authority to do so itself, it intends to try and send out a formal message to Eric Garcetti, the Mayor of Los Angeles, to see if he’ll do something about it. They also messaged the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, the key decision maker, and the Los Angeles City Council, to push for the star to be binned.

Citing all manner of reasons to remove the star, including “disturbing treatment of women and other actions that do not meet the shared values of the City of West Hollywood, the region, state, and country,” it’s likely that this will fall on deaf ears.

According to John D’Amico, the West Hollywood Mayor, this isn’t to do with political affiliation, but that the star is an “honor” and that when one belittles and attacks minorities, immigrants, people with disabilities or women—the honor no longer exists.”

Turning Up the Heat

While such superficial battles won’t make one bit of difference in the long-run, it’s nice to see a bit of backlash against Trump. The Walk of Fame star that he has in Hollywood has already been the victim of vandals, and was even chipped away at by someone with a pickaxe. It’s also been spray-painted with Nazi imagery and various other profane stickers, so it might just be for the best to remove the star in the long run.


Given that other stars in the past have not been removed, though, it’s not likely to happen. According to ex-President and CEO f the Chamber, Leron Gubler, it’s not something to consider. Speaking in 2015 regarding the removal of Bill Cosby’s star, Gubler said: “once a star has been added to the Walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”

If that’s the case, expect this bit of drama to carry on for a good while yet.

Apple Introduces: the New Memoji

Talk about giving its users something new to play with, we are expecting new emojis. According to the reports, users of Apple products will soon have more emojis to make their communication even more fun. We are expecting not 10 but 70 new emojis.

This is to mark the World emoji day which is usually an exciting day in the tech world. We already know Amazon has planned its Prime day. If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can start using the new emojis with the latest update. Let me leak a secret; you can expect some exciting hairstyles and options such as red, gray, bald or blonde.

It seems there is always a demand for emojis; we can already guess that the redheads and curly hairstyles will be the most popular choices among the new emojis.

What’s more, we are also expecting some new real looking animals to be added to the emojis. It has been gathered that a parrot, lobster, kangaroo, and a peacock have been selected; other new emojis are the freezing face which will be viral during winter and the fruits such as mangos and lettuce.

Do you love cakes? Let others know what you are craving with the new cupcake and mooncake emojis. The world emoji standard is managed by the Unicode consortium; they are a non-profit company who vet these additions. There is a master list provided by the Unicode consortium and the companies such as Apple can choose which emojis they want to be featured on their devices.

On the master list, there have also been some corrections. The illustrations of some emojis have passed a wrong message and are mostly misunderstood. These errors were pointed out, they include the beer emoji which shows foam on the can, and it was often misplaced by Google and has been corrected in this new rollout.

Also, the hamburger emoji has been redone. In the review, the ingredients formerly seen ‘peeking’ out from the hamburger have been changed. Emojis have made it easier to express feelings and emotions via the internet. Text messages can be understood better when an emoji has been added to convey the intended tone. They make our texts seem more human rather than some content was written by the smart assistants who can also be used to send text and instant messages.

We are delighted to start using some of the expected emojis in our emails. Let’s have a laugh, brighten up someone’s day by sending a fun light-hearted emoji to take some stress of the job.

OMG: After 66 Years Longest Fingernails Have Been Cut

For many years Shridhar Chillal the 82-year-old man from Pune, India had made news as the owner of the longest fingernails on a single hand. He was recently in the news after cutting his famous nails at the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not at the Times Square, New York, US. Chillal had been growing his nails since he was only 14 years old.

He never thought the nails would grow so long and he will be in the news for this spectacular feature. Over the years, Chillal grew his nails so long and had been recognized by many world record archives.

At the last measurement, his nails were discovered to be about 909.6 cm (29 ft. 10.1 in) in total. This is about the length of a standard bus in London. The individual nails were measured and the lengths are as follows:

Little finger: 179.1 cm

Ring finger: 181.6 cm

Middle finger: 186.6 cm

Index finger: 164.5 cm

Thumb: 197.8 cm

At his first appearance in the Guinness World Records in 1979, Chillal’s nails were found to have a combined measurement of 219.7 cm (86.5 inches). At the Science & Stuff event recently organized, the audience was educated about fingernails and how they can grow to be so long.

Chillal in many interviews has expressed his joy at this accomplishment, however; the fingernails have had an impact on his life. He has had to be very careful when sleeping or moving around because the nails are very delicate and can easily break.

He works as a photographer back in India. It has been a long-time passion, and he has been able to cope with his photography job by using a special handle to protect his nails while working.

Asked if he had faced criticisms, he confirms that there was stiff opposition from his parents while he was growing up. They had the opinion that he would not be able to work if he continued growing his nails. Over the years, the amazing length of the nails made his hands quite handicapped because he couldn’t use them due to the weight of the nails.

When asked why he cut the nails eventually, he confirmed that the nails had caused his him to feel a lot of pain at his wrists and fingers. He claims the tips of the nails hurt all the time. Chillal has made a name for himself in the world of weird news. The nails have been cut and will be displayed at the Times Square, Ripley’s Believe IT or Not.

New Google Calendar Update Helps With Reshuffling Meetings.

Google is making it easier to reschedule meetings on Calendar — and avoid all that unnecessary Slack chatter — with a new feature that lets participants propose alternative times from within the app itself. The organizer of the meeting is then given the option to review and accept the new time or reject it. All attendees’ availability windows, if their calendars are shared with co-workers, will also now be displayed in a side-by-side view, so it’s easier to propose times that work with everyone’s schedules.

When a user is invited to a Calendar event, they can respond “Yes,” “No,” Maybe,” and now, “Propose a new time.” If calendar access permissions have been granted, guests can see the other attendees’ availability side by side, so they can suggest a time that works for everyone. All that is done in order to cut down on the amount of work it takes to reshuffle a meeting.

“This allows for richer communication between attendees, reduces time spent on meeting practicalities, and makes meetings more productive with key stakeholders in attendance,” reads the company’s blog post. This new feature will also let users add a message if they choose to in order to give some context around the rescheduling.

The feature should be available for all web users of Google Calendar starting today but will take time until it will be available to mobile users, they will have to wait until Aug 13th.

Will the New Samsung S10 Take over the Market?

It is almost the end of another year, a period when the big players in the smartphone market will unveil their superior flagships in a race to capture the huge market. For a long time the race between Samsun and Apple has been close, and now there are indications that the public should expect outstanding changes in the Samsung S10 soon to be released.

From what we have gathered, the notable change that has always been used to differentiate the Samsung flagships is the position of the fingerprint scanner. On the Samsung Galaxy S9, it was located at the back of the phone.

Now we hear this position will be changed on the S10. It gets interesting because we know the likely positions of this scanner are almost exhausted so are we expecting a virtual scanner on the S10? It will be awesome. We expect Samsung to take advantage of this new smartphone to promote the ultrasonic virtual fingerprint scanner. This is a project that has been overlooked by the Apple developers. If Samsung gets it right, smartphone users who like new twists will definitely want to give it a try.

Some new development we expect is the unveiling of three new models for the Samsung S10 smartphone. From all indications, the market has always embraced the availability of options to users, and the introduction of three new models will be good news.

The three new models will have different screen sizes, starting from the smaller 5.8-inch screen for the regular sized Samsun S10, and a larger 6.1-inch screen, then it gets better, for the fans who like big screens, the S10 will also feature a large 6.4-inch screen.

A fingerprint scanner on display will be a convenient modification that will impress many users. The option of different screen sizes has always helped smartphone flagships sell more units in the market. As it stands, there is no reason to consider another brand.

The choice of Apple to eliminate the fingerprint scanner from the new devices to be released later this year has raised mixed feelings from people who may find it inconveniencing to use the facial recognition feature that Apple wants to promote. Maybe more users will end up leaving their phones unlocked to avoid the hassle. Samsung will install the fingerprint scanners on the side of the smaller Samsung Galaxy S 10 phones, once again distinguishing the device from the Samsung Galaxy S9 phones.

It is clear that customers will be able to make easier decisions this time after the release of the flagship smartphones for big brands. This is because the features we expect are going to be entirely different. So it is going to be about the features that are more convenient for the users.

Samsung has also revealed its plans to ship as many as forty million Galaxy S10 phones after the release of the flagship device. The marketing strategy will be developed to promote the three models to the public in view of achieving the biggest sales the company has recorded to date.

Everything We Know About the Upcoming iPhone 9

After a long period of waiting and development, the iPhone 9 is finally on its way. As one of the most exciting smartphone releases in some time, it’s going to be very interesting to see what the next iPhone can bring to the table.

While there’s not a huge amount of information available on the iPhone 9 at this moment in time, we’re sure that there will be shortly. Given that you mostly just need to look at what the big trends are in the mobile industry to spot what the next big change on an Apple device might be, we’ll take a few guesses at what might be coming.

Of course, first off – we don’t even know the name of the expected phone. Brand marketers might think the iPhone 9 sounds less modern than the iPhone X – 10 – so it’ll be interesting to see if they play on that gimmick with the name. We could see them dispense with the use of a number at all, as they did with the iPad at one stage.

Key Features

One of the most interesting changes that we’ve heard about is the new ‘Super Retina Display’ system being included. This is going to be a very interesting phone, with a near-edge-to-edge OLED screen being likely. While some experts claim they may go for a mix of LCD and OLED screens, it’s hard to say for sure.

It’ll obviously use the Face ID system, too, which has become a bit of a must-have for Apple goods. It’s likely to make an appearance here after being given rave reviews on the iPhone X. we might also see a change in the hardware being used, as the Apple A12 chip might be included to help improve overall performance.

It will also help to manage out the battery, ensuring that you might have fewer issues than other Apple handsets have had in recent times. Alongside a nice boost to its processing power and ability to handle more modern software demands, it’ll likely be a touch sturdier than the previous solution.

We’ll also likely get a USB-C fast charger with it, making sure that you can get a high-quality charge from a device that would usually cost you a pretty penny to pick up. For example, an 18W USB-C charger could cost you anything from $50+.

It might even come with a pair of Apple AirPods: the top quality Apple earphones that everyone is using these days. However, no confirmation on most of this is available yet: like most Apple devices, they are keeping the major news for the iPhone 9 under lock and key.

Experts think it will be released sometime in September. The majority of Apple devices since the iPhone 5 were announced in September, and available for shipping later that month.

If you are interested in trying out the latest and greatest from Apple, then you should not have to wait too much longer for the iPhone 9 to hit the market.

Huawei Reveals New 8GB RAM Smartphone

Improving all the time and growing stronger, it’s no surprise that smartphones are now seeing massively powerful hardware installed within. Once deemed a long-term aim, it’s now known that Huawei has managed to build its first ever smartphone capable of holding 8GB of RAM in the one system.

The Honor 10 GT will be the first model of their stable that will be capable of delivering 8GB of RAM. That is a huge step forward for the tech firm, who has shown a rapid level of development in the last few years. Alongside more RAM, the Honor 10 GT build on the original by including extras such as.

  • 8” 2280 x 1080 LCD display with top quality fingerprint sensors.
  • 24MP camera that can be used for top quality images and edge-to-edge display.

This is going to be one of the most exciting phones of its kind to be released for some time, but the fact it will cost not far off $400 might be an off-putting starting price for this interested to try out a Huawei model with 8GB of RAM.

As he old Huawei Honor 10 was capable of having 4/6GB of RAM, this adds yet another dosage of performance to help improve the way that you use your Huawei device. Add in the new USB Type-C ports, and it is easy to see why so many people are excited for this latest part of the Huawei brand.

Where can I buy the Huawei Honor 10 GT Smartphone?

While no release date for abroad is set at present, we will make sure you know exactly where to pick up your Huawei Honor 10 GT as soon as it is available. It will be released in China later this month, but it will not be hitting shores abroad for the medium-term, going on what we have learned so far.

Alien Life? The Right Stuff Was Found in Space

NASA is always up to working on to create conditions on other planets and moon for human survival other than the planet Earth. They send in stuff to space such as Salt, Silica, water and carbon-containing compounds. These ingredients are essential to life.

On Saturn’s small moon which is called Enceladus, NASA is currently working on a dead spacecraft. They have found the most complex heavy organic compounds ever, which contain numerous atoms which are arranged in chains and rings. These heavy organic compounds make life sustainable on moon beyond the earth.

A scientist from Cornell University named Jonathan Lunine says, “What we know today is telling us that Enceladus is an outstanding target to go look for life, and there may be microbes living in that ocean today”.

In 2005, a Cassini spacecraft went to explore Saturn and found out icy jets venting from Enceladus. These jets contained water which was underneath the moon’s icy shell. Scientists studied these jets and found out about their Salinity, acidity, heat energy and were also able to recognize compounds such as Methane.

However, the scientists are still not sure whether these compounds are an emblem of existence of aliens or they are just unresponsive chemistry, as the author of journal Nature, Frank Postberg of the University of Heidelberg says, “We cannot decide this hundred-million-dollar question, but it certainly shows that something is going on there, that complex organic chemistry is happening and that we can prove it from space, The moon freely delivers its organic inventory at high concentrations to the Cassini spacecraft. That’s just an amazing finding”.

DUST DETECTOR

Last September Cassini jumped into a ringed planet which contains data to be explored. Cassini moved towards the ring and collected some data by colliding with its particles. From 2004 to 2008, Postberg and his team studied the data from the E ring. They collected and examined approximately 10 thousand dust particles over the course of 15 separate intervals. 1% of those 10 thousand dust particles, were acknowledged as complex organic compounds. “It was kind of a needle in a haystack problem,” says Postberg.

FLOATING FILM

The molecules detected are as heavy as 200 atomic mass units. They contain carbon atoms, nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen. This is the first time ever that such weighty organic compounds have been found. Morgan Cable of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory says, “While we have found large molecules outside of Earth before, this is the first time they have been detected emerging from a liquid water ocean…Many large organic molecules are not stable in liquid water for extended periods of time, so one of the next questions to ask is, where are these organic molecules coming from?”. 

Postman and his team try to answer the question in the following words, “Our oceans have a thin film of organic molecules floating on top—think ‘oil slick’ but made up of life and its byproducts—that covers the ocean to a significant extent,” Cable says. “Now it seems that Enceladus has this too. But is it also made by life?”

LYING IN WAIT

Furthermore, these compounds may not reflect life as Lunine says, “Are they being made by abiotic processing at the bottom of the ocean, where the rock and water meet, or are they the waste products of microbes? That’s the question, with a capital Q,”

The findings tell scientists that the icy shell may have properties that support life but this is a complex matter which is yet to be explored much in detail, As Lunine says, “We should try to go back to Enceladus as soon as we can, it’s waiting for us. It’s not going anywhere, and think of all that microbial poo that could be spewed out into space and analyzed today.”

NASA is planning to pause working on Enceladus and send a spacecraft to Europa which orbits Jupiter. Let’s see what they will find next. To find out more, stay tuned!

In the meantime, if you want a quick summary here is a great article by the Verge:

MoneyBall: 2018 World Cup Winner to Get $38 Million

The bar has been raised for this year’s world cup football tournament currently holding in Russia. The winner of the tournament will be walking away with $38 million. This figure is noticeably higher than the award handed over to Germany when it won the tournament three years ago.

FIFA announced that the total funds set aside for this tournament were $400 million, from this purse, the winning national team will be rewarded for their hard work and victory. Other participating countries are also expected to receive about $8 million each to cover costs incurred during this tournament. The national team that comes second during this football tournament will also receive $28 million. While the third and fourth national teams will get $24 and $22 million for their achievements.

From all indications, these rewards have been increased from the amounts paid three years ago. Every team gets something for their efforts as usual. The funds have been provided by FIFA from the revenues generated by the World Cup organizing body. In total, it is expected that the revenue will exceed $5 billion even with the minor setbacks experienced during the sales of sponsorships due to the investigations into corruption charges.

This was confirmed by the FIFA President Gianni Infantino who in a statement affirmed that the revenue is expected to be more than expected from the current financial projections.

It will also be recalled that about $100 million is still inaccessible from the previous world cup tournament held in Brazil. This money is disputed in the midst of some corruption charges still being investigated. The money in dispute would have been used to redeem pledges made by FIFA to promote grassroots football and women’s football as well as healthcare and the provision of social amenities in poor communities within Brazil.

In view of preventing disputes and fraudulent practices, Infantino has confirmed that funds will now be handled separately by a new organization that will also be in charge of handling the funding for projects to be done under his leadership.

FIFA has also made plans to acknowledge the winning team of the Intercontinental Cup which has been organized from 1960 to 2004. It is a competition between the champions of the European Cup and the Copa Libertadores. In 2005, the Intercontinental Cup was rebranded to become the Club World Cup which involved all continental champions. The next edition will be held in Abu Dhabi in 2018.

Infantino has however hinted that there are plans to review the Club World Cup to replace the Confederation Cup which is scheduled to hold in 2021. With these on-going plans, we expect to have a wonderful world cup tournament which has already started on an exciting note with the host country Russia winning their world cup game.
